Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Truth is weirder than any fiction I’ve seen.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “How long, oh Lord, how long?

Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “NOT EVERYBODY is comfortable with the idea that politics is a guilty addiction. But it is.

Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “A sense of humor is the main measure of sanity.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I knew a Buddhist once, and I’ve hated myself ever since.”

Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I wanted to take off all my clothes and never wear them again.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I sat there a long time, and thought about a lot of things. Foremost among them was the suspicion that my strange and ungovernable instincts might do me in before I had a chance to get rich.

That maddening delusion that a man can lead a decent life without hiring himself out as a Judas Goat.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I think I’m going to have to get a flying license very soon, and maybe one of those Lear jets. It beats motorcycles all to hell.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only real cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas. To relax, as it were, in the womb of the desert sun.”
